A couple years ago, we ran a series called “Trout Bum of the Week,” in which we highlighted some of the guys living the good life. . .of a sort. (See the bottom of this post for a link to the previous installments.) Last week we launched another round of profiles. Most of the subjects are guides who have turned their. . .

Last week, I was dropping my kids off at school, when I passed a pickup truck with two stand-up paddleboards and a bunch of fly rods in the back. I was intrigued enough that, when I got back to the office, I started asking around to see if anyone knew the guy. My friend Andrew said, . . .

This morning, my windshield was covered in thick dew—a sure sign of cooler nights gnawing at the hot days of summer. Fall will be here soon, cool and glorious and way too short. Winter will follow, locking down any real chance of fishing until late March. In South Dakota, where I live, the winters are. . .
Winston Cundiff of All Water Guides, in Central Texas, sent me the link to this great video the other day. He describes it as the “greatest hits from last season on the Colorado River below Austin.” It’s great a beat, and I can dance to it, you know?

I had the opportunity to host Orvis product developer Tim Daughton for a weekend in Cleveland earlier this month. In our discussions leading up to his visit, I mentioned to Tim that the local fishing scene was in a transition period between spring steelhead and our summer target species—smallmouths, largemouths, and. . .

A few weeks ago, we posted about an episode of “River Monsters” that focused on tarpon in Nicaragua. That was cool, but it’s even more exciting that part of this week’s episode was actually filmed right in our back yard, and Jeremy Wade was guided by none other than. . .
It’s been downright summer-like here in Vermont for the past week, so even though our topwater bass season is still a way off, this video feels just right. Watching a largemouth annihilate a popper is one of the great joys of fly fishing.
